A contemporary snapshot of two issues upon which the Rciadic report commented: Youth justice and the over-incarceration of aboriginal young people, and alcohol-related offences and offending

Abstract: In 2001, a Northern Territory ('NT') Magistrates Court sentenced a man to 14 days imprisonment for possessing a five litre cask of moselle in the Aboriginal community of Hermannsburg. The sentencing Magistrate remarked: 'On 18 June, when I was last here at Hermannsburg, I said that anyone who was found to have liquor in their possession in a restricted area of Hermannsburg would be sentenced to a term of imprisonment, and so it will be in this case.'
